If you have a PDF scan of it, then I can add it to the thread. As a matter of fact I think we have been ignoring the european languages just a bit too much. I have been thinking of adding a section for PDF scans of books written in dutch, german, italian, spanish, ...

As one of the strange people that has an extensive collection of books on the TI in many languages (English, French, German, Dutch, Italian, and Spanish), I am definitely interested in this book, as it is one I have not seen before. I have a couple of others from SHIFT EDITION, but this one is definitely new to me. As to scanning the books from other languages, Retroclouds--that is on my voluminous list of things to do. . .some of them cover subjects that didn't make it into the English side very often as well. I have one very good book on TurboPASC99 and a number of good books on Assembly (all of these are in German).

These are the files for the Turbo Pasc'99 Pascal development environment for the TI 99/4A designed by Wiposoft in 1986. The zip file contains 4 disk images in V9t9 format for the compiler, libraries and demos. The original German manual was translated by apersson850 (Thanks!!!!) to English.

While Turbo Pasc'99 is not as complete an implementation of Pascal as the UCSD Pascal system, it does have the advantage of not requiring any special hardware other than 32K RAM and a disk drive, and will likely meet the programming needs of most TIers.

I hope you find this package useful :)


ADDENDUM: The current compiler disk image currently has issues. I am working at finding a fix if possible.

For some reason the link to GPLHOW2E is broken here is the right one that works.

It looks like the win994a emulator has been updated (see the post on the Yahoo group below), and it fixes the assembler bug among other things. This is indeed great news!

Hi Guys-

Please excuse the cross post. Just wanted to let everybody that Cory Burr
released a new version of Win994a.

Updates:

-This version of Win994a is fairly light on changes. Mainly, these are technical
internal modifications and most folks won't see any difference.

-The "X" (eXecute) cpu opcode has been modified to function correctly. In past
versions, failure of this opcode caused several cartridges to malfunction, often
resulting in crashes and Win994a reboots. Opcodes that set the "carry flag" were
modified slightly.

-The Win994a Preferences Dialog has been modified to include a fast 16bit access
32K Extended Memory option.

-The Disk Manager application has virtually stayed the same.

-The assembler application has been revised and updated to correct a problem
with the resulting machine code generated by a few conditional branch op codes.

You can download it at:

http://www.99er.net/...=category&id=15

Yeah, all of Fred's stuff needs to have the "members.ziggo.nl/fredgkaal" part of his links replaced with "home.vodafonevast.nl/fgkaal".

Multiple changes:

* Added 2nd Edition of the TI Forth Instruction Manual, updated and enhanced by Lee Stewart
* Fixed the URL's pointing to Fred's homepage. Seems that Fred is a moving target ;-)
* Added LGMA Products' FORTRAN v4.4 to the programming language section.
* Added reference to the TI99ers Hall Of Fame where appropriate (http://www.ti99hof.org/index.html)
